Well Being Lyrics

by Eyedea & Abilities

[background]
And now the voice in your head IS yours

[Eyedea]
Take a deep breath there's nothing to be afraid of
What you just did was fall to the depths of existence
The place the mind keeps you away from by it's own process
of building models for understanding
This is not insanity, this is in fact the ultimate reality
The union you've acheived is only possible in thoughts no more
You never fall if you never fight

[background]
You never fall if you never fight

[x2]
You found yourself falling into madness so you dove
The best thing you ever did was let go

[x2]
I found myself falling into madness so I dove
The best thing I ever did was let go

[Eyedea]
See life is a play that we are always acting out
without ever seeing it from the writers or audiences point of view
When we reach infinity we become the writer
the actors and the audience at the exact same time

So here you are, and now you understand
You always were here, that's why you always ran
But you can only run away for so long
Before you catch up with yourself and become part of the song
I'd like to welcome you, to the heaven you've created
I tell the truth, this is the wisdom of the ancients
Holding onto something contradicts or being, so fly free [x4]
Maybe I had to go crazy to get where I am
I felt myself slipping away and I let myself fall
Gotta lose your mind before you find it
And when you finally find it you'll find out you never lost it at all
There's a natural flow, that's attached to the soul
It don't ask you to go, it just gradually pulls
It's always now and your never not you
So follow yourself because if nothing else your existence is true

[Chorus]
have you ever felt yourself slipping away? I am, I mean, I was slipping away
but no matter what I am I'm me, and I know me so I'm ok
have you ever felt yourself slipping away? you are, I mean, you were, slipping away
but no matter what you are you you, and you know you so your ok

[Eyedea]
I'm not a poet or a communist, a comet or a star
You're not a genius or a prophet, you just are
I'm not insane cause I have no need for my sanity
It's just another chain that keeps me from reality
Reality is mine to play with and mold
the best thing I ever did was let go
So let go of the models transend the physical mind
and peacefully become part of the whole
The walls came tumbling down, but this town it was for creeps
I've been runnin around, lookin for my feet
And now a part of the ground, and if the ground complete
Live in the now and forever be at peace
Live in the now don't stray away from the cycle
I'm one with the universe, one with the life flow
When you know that that which is below is above
the fear you once had will become love (feel the love)

[Chorus]

[Eyedea]
It starts out with a question. how much of it is real?
Now all is irrelevant, outside of this ordeal
Don't worry about explainin it there ain't no human language
that can actually describe exactly how you feel
Now I see clear, through external distractions
Piece by piece it comes together, so I laugh and I smile
In the beginning it was deranged
But I guess all things come to pass, after awhile
If madness could have a picture face how would it look?
like step one to becoming the contents of your own book?
Right where you are right now is where your gonna stay
And as long as you're always moving with yourself you'll, never slip away

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
